“Kayaking to the Secret Falls was a great time!”
Reviewed 24 April 2012

My husband and I took the kayak trip offered by Rainbow Kayak while on vacation in Kauai recently. It was a great time. What really made the trip was our guide Bobby. He went out of his way to make everyone feel great. We were very impressed that, while not a local, he has gone out of his way to learn about Hawaiian culture and showed great respect for all things Hawaiian. We also appreciated that he was concerned about everyone having a great time. We were in a group that had lots of small children and people who had never kayaked before and he some how managed to give appropriate instruction to all levels.

Aloha trvl_so_far,
Its amazing how well bobby can facilitate a group. His professionalism is just one of his many accolades. Old, young, expert, first timer... no problem for Bobby. As long as your ready to learn and relish a great outdoor experience you found the guy. He takes challenge as a game and has fun with it. Good luck having as much fun as we do daily!

“Great Trip Up the River!”
Reviewed 18 April 2012

What an amazing trip! I had some friends visiting and decided to take a trip with Rainbow Kayaks instead of renting our own and I'm so glad I did. Bobby our guide was so knowledgable and made the trip outstanding. As a local, it's nice to see a responsible and caring company on the Wailua River.

Aloha Kauai3,
So stoked to get some local recognition on trip advisor. We do our best to be an eco friendly, cultural sound guide operation. It is known how we interact with the community locally, but responding on sites like this lets our customers from abroad know our role here on Kaua'i. We strive daily to be the stewards of the valley and to relay our passion for kaua'i to our guests. Thanks for the good words. Please come out with family and friends more often.

“a great morning trip”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Bobby was the best! Great instructor as well as an excellent guide. Beautiful trip with a fun albeit muddy hike. However, this is what you expect in one of the rainiest places on the earth. You end up seeing the not so secret, but beautiful, waterfall. Expect to work a little, but it is all sooo worth it. Mahalo!

Aloha Riotricky,
Simple, awesome review. Bobby rocks! The mud is therapeutic, people pay big money to have it on their body. All part of the trip, no extra charge. Unfortunately we are going into the summer month when its a dry walk in the Wailua State park. We look forward to our next muddy winter season. Its all part of the adventure.

“Absolutely awesome!!”
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Aaron and Kevin are so much fun! Had a rather large group of us to deal with and we had a blast. The kayak up the river was fun and the hike to the secret falls was beautiful. We swam, and although it was cold at 1st, it was so worth it. Lunch was provided and it was really good. I highly recommend this tour, you will not be disappointed! Hi from your Montana friends (all 15 of us). :)

“Great Kayak Trip”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

My family and I went on one of your Kayak trips on April 4 up the Wailua River. We had a great time. The location and experience was wonderful. Best of all was our guide, Davey Jones! His experience, knowledge of the islands history and general overview of what to expect was fantastic. He made the day a great one. If you can, I highly recommend Davey as a guide, you will definitely enjoy all of his valuable insights about the Island of Kauai!!

Thanks
Eric
